Got ya; so, given he said the best part about the 60s was the "spiritual", I think we need to examine how much of the 60s fits the defn you quote above...? right? esp what went down in SF...

Not much is the obvious answer, right? So, in the context of his statement, I think we can infer he meant spirituality in the common usage of the term separated from "spirits"...

But, as you note, only speculation.

Spirituality and religion are inseparable. It's only from laziness, pride, or cowardice that the "spiritual" can't find solace from the religions. And just because you appreciate religion doesn't mean you can't enjoy different forms of expression like art and literature.

I wonder what Jerry talked to Dylan about during Dylan's born-again Christian phase that Dylan appreciated for so long? And what was Legion of Mary about anyway? Maybe they should have named the band the Dawkins or The Selfish Genes or The Nothing.

Well, all depends on how you define and use the term "spiritual". I venture to say your conjoining the two is NOT what happened here in New Age California, certainly not in the 60s.

You venture wrong. This time. :)
